Early life and education
Laura hasn’t shared much about her childhood with the public, as she prefers to keep these things to herself – she is said to have spent her entire childhood in Kansas City with her parents and siblings, but who she doesn’t talk about. She has been passionate about journalism since a very young age, and after she matriculated from a local high school, enrolled at the University of Kansas and graduated four years later with a Bachelor’s Degree in Journalism.
As soon as she graduated from college, Laura started working for the local sports channel in Chicago, while she gained recognition when she became part of the Chattanooga TN. She worked as their anchor and reporter of the sports news, and due to her excellent skills she won the Chicago Midwest Emmy Award for Outstanding Achievements.
Laura felt her dream of becoming a successful reporter completely came true once she started working for CNN as their host and reporter in 1997 – she worked every day on both CNN and CNNSI shows including “CNN Early Edition”, “Page One”, “NBA Today”, and “CNN Morning News” – she left the network in 2002.
She joined the FOX Sports Network in 2002, and worked as their host, anchor, and a reporter – she covered numerous important events such as ten Super Bowls, two Olympic Games, several NBA Finals, Baseball World Series and All-Star games. At the same time, in 2002 and 2003, she worked for TNT/TBS Sports as their reporter during the National Basketball Association (NBA) Playoffs, while she was also a host of Atlanta Braves (baseball) and Atlanta Thrashers (ice hockey) coverage.
She is currently working as a seasoned reporter for FOX as she covers NFL for them together with announcer Chris Myers and the analyst Daryl Johnston while she is also the feature reporter of the “FOX NFL SUNDAY” and “FOX NFL KICKOFF” shows. Because she always wanted to make her own content, she launched LO Productions which produced 30-minute long series focused on people from the NFL and which aired on FSN. She was quite busy while the show was active as she worked as the show’s Executive Producer, booking every guest and writing every episode herself.
Is Laura an actress?
Laura has appeared in “The Manson Brothers Midnight Zombie Massacre” movie, “NFL on FOX” TV series, and “Totally Football” TV series – this is enough to call her an actress as well.
Laura is a bit secretive when it comes to her personal life, she is one of those people who like to keep their professional and personal lives separated. She was said to be a married woman since 1996 while her other half was said to be a musician, but his identity was not known until Laura posted a picture with him on her Instagram account – his name is Mikel Hagerty and he is a movie producer. On the other hand, judging by another Instagram post, it seems that the couple went out on their first date six years ago and have therefore exchanged their vows sometime between 2013 and 2019 and not in 1996 as is believed by most people. Although the couple is said to not have any kids of their own, they have two dogs named Booyah and Bandit who they consider as part of the family.
Somehow I’ve been cast in a (very) small role in @maxmartinila & my husband’s latest film. All you need to know is the first picture is with Max who’s directing and, by the look on his face, seems to know something I don’t … and the second is with my stunt coordinator???♀️ pic.twitter.com/LIeRFFXNZI
